If I tried this WOD, I would be going up to the whiteboard after each exercise to see what comes next and how many reps.

Way too elite to care about the point of diminishing return. If more is better, even more must be even better? Right?

I thought I'd give this a go. It took me 56:40. I felt the point of diminishing return when I hit the burpees. At 520 reps, I averaged 6 seconds per rep.

A coach actually legitimately came up with this? That seems almost irresponsible, honestly.

i am all for doing stuff that is "stupid" or "crazy" every once in a while, whether as a challenge, to honor the fallen, for fun, or for mental toughness, but on this one i have to ask why such light loads on the lifting and even more what is with the weird and random number of reps for each exercise? was there a purpose or some reason that the reps for each thing are like that? do it have to do with the firefighters age or some kind of dates, or what am i missing? to have to constantly be interupted to and distracted to look and see how many reps of the next thing and then try to remember would be really annoying.

Maybe Joe can give more insight to the reason for the rep numbers.

I surely wouldn't want to be coaching this WOD in group class. I did this at home. I knew it would be long, so the intensity wasn't very high. It was more like skill work on a bunch of different movements.

Yes - the rep counts corresponded with the ages of the firefighters that passed.

She said she originally had each exercise at 19 reps, for the number that were killed, but that seemed too easy. She said she did not expect it to take as long as it did (took me 56:00 also), so that's the reason for the light weights.

The best time at our box was 36: something.

I'm with Jeff on this one. Sure, it's long and difficult to get through, but will it safely improve your level of fitness? And, as Andrew said, that rep scheme (while admirably meaningful) just looks ****ing annoying.
